This tiny, bitters-focused bar from the folks at Cienfuegos specializes in (what else?) carefully-crafted cocktails. The space has been transformed from the former Carteles sandwich shop into an old-school tasting room with wine-colored walls, dark damask wallpaper, and shelves lined with bartending paraphernalia and Bittermens bitters. The ingredients listed in the cocktails seem mysterious, but fear not: bartenders recommends drinks depending on his customers’ preferences, as well as encouraging them to try bolder flavors. For the bitters virgin, he mightsuggest the Sharpie Mustache, with rye, whiskey, gin, and tiki bitters; For the seasoned vet, he’ll sling a Second Sip, a dizzying concoction of scotch, homemade sweet vermouth, port, fernet, and bitters. Better than the drinks themselves might even be watching the pros work their magic while zesting citrus peels right on the bar (which seats eight, with five at the back rail, so get there early to snag a stool) or mixes drinks in glasses you might find at a soda fountain.  The kitchens serves an abbreviated menu of Latin-flavored bites.
